The Mauritius Banking System

The Bank of Mauritius was established in September 1967 as the Central Bank of the country. It was modelled on the Bank of England and was, in effect, set up with the assistance of senior officers of the Bank of England.

The setting up of the Bank of Mauritius marked the beginning of a new phase in the monetary history of Mauritius, with the monetary system moving forward from the stage of ‘Sterling Exchange Standard’, under which currency was issued in exchange for sterling at a fixed rate of exchange, to that of a ‘managed currency’ in which the discretionary role of the monetary authority becomes important.

The Bank of Mauritius Act 1966 (as amended) lays down the purposes of the Bank which are to safeguard the internal and external value of the currency of Mauritius and its internal convertibility and to direct its policy towards achieving monetary conditions conducive to strengthening the economic activity and prosperity of Mauritius.
